PORT-AU-PRINCE — Haiti’s gas stations continued to sell fuel with no significant disruption, five days after a powerful gang lifted a two-month blockade of the road to the country's main fuel storage facility. The fuel pump reopening, which began Nov. 11, brought relief to millions, who were forced to restrict or altogether halt activities across all areas of daily life.
“This is good news,” said Marc André Deriphonse, president of the National Association of Service Station Owners (ANAPROSS). “We made sure that all the fuel pumps could have the gas and operate simultaneously. We went to several places and found that the distribution took place in order.”
Haiti’s gas stations continued selling fuel with no disruption – at least for now – to the relief of residents long left suffering without gas, diesel or kerosene to meet basic needs.
